HUBBARDS, NOVA SCOTIA

Hubbards is about 30 minutes south of Halifax and is our base this month. Hubbard's Cove is quite pretty, and this is a good launching point for visiting much of the South Shore. We can't say much good about the campground we're at - it is very disappointing. But we've "made lemonade" by touring about on good days, and our first week here we made the most wonderful friends in Debbie and Steve from Ottowa. They've gone home now :( but we're so glad to know them. Anyway, you can see that Hubbards itself, like the rest of Nova Scotia, is quite lovely. Enjoy!

RVPainter relaxing in our "secret spot" - the community park and boat launch across the harbor from our campground.

Colorful inn and restaurant on the road to the campground - we sat on their lawn to watch a free concert and fireworks on Canada Day

Most of the churches here look like this. This one is particularly gothic - so much so that it has been used in a Canadian TV show called The Haven that is written or produced or something, by Stephen King. They were shooting the show here when we first arrived.

  2. Lovely photo's there Miss M. I thought I recognized the church...we're big fans of the show Haven. Thought it might be filmed in Nova Scotia pretending to be Maine. Glad to see you're still alive up there. Miss our chats but glad you're having a great time.....xoxoxo

  3. Dear Melissa, your journey posting are bringing up within me the desire to hit the road--when it's cooler here (100 today/108 possibly tomorrow)--and explore! Thank you.

    I hope you are getting lots of writing done. Peace.
